  • Adopt physical habits such as yoga or exercise
  • Integrate the colour red into your wardrobe and home décor
  • Eat red fruits and vegetables like tomatoes and red apples
  • Listen to a deep beat music, such as hip-hop or Latin music, that moves your body

Maintaining Balance in your Sacral Chakra:

  • Use scents and smells that positively affect the Sacral Chakra, e.g. sweet orange, ylang-ylang or sandalwood

  • Place crystal such as Moonstone, Carnelian and Golden Topaz on the location of the Sacral Chakra for clearing, revitalising and healing. You may also carry Sacral crystals with you throughout your day
  • Use positive Sacral affirmations. Take a few moments to sit in quiet reflection. Tune into your own Sacral Chakra and find the affirmations needed specifically at this time. Feel what you need to say to yourself to bring healing to your Sacral Chakra and take a few minutes each day this week to repeat them. Embody them. Believe them! Use affirmations such as:
     “Pleasure is a good and valuable part of my life”
     “I give myself permission to fully enjoy my sexuality”
     “I allow abundance and prosperity into my life”
     “I allow my emotions to flow through me in a healthy way”
  • Try not to keep feelings bottled up, but find safe ways to express and release emotions, e.g. talking to a friend, chanting, dancing, painting, writing a journal and getting the necessary and appropriate external support on any emotional issues that you need to deal with
  • Create opportunities for pleasurable feelings in your life. Find the time to do things you really enjoy; create some “you” time every day. And spend time with positive and uplifting people
  • Create an emotionally calming environment in your home by cleansing your personal space with incense and burning candles

Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura - YELLOW

  • Spend some time each day on self-care – treat yourself to a relaxing bath with candle light and soft music, or that extra hour of uninterrupted reading

Heart Chakra – Anahata – GREEN/PINK

Location: At the physical location is the heart, in the centre of the chest
Maintaining Balance in your Heart Chakra:

  • Be green, see green and breathe green. Get out in nature. Light a green candle. Visualise a strong, clear green light filling up your heart centre. With each inhale imagine your heart centre—and possibly the rest of your body—filling up with a soft, green light and with every exhale feel your heart centre purge pent-up negativity. Don’t be too forceful on your exhalations. Rather, focus more energy on your positive, “green” inhalation
  • Allow yourself to be loved—including, and most especially, by yourself. Also give love. One of the best and easiest ways to cleanse and balance this Chakra is by loving others unconditionally and unselfishly
  • Realise that the grass isn’t always greener. It’s often human nature to naysay. Resist the urge to find fault in everything. Be thankful for what you already have
  • Forgive. A lot of blockages in this Chakra are fostered by not letting go of past hurts, anger, grief, regret, etc. Let go. If you need professional counselling, don’t put it off any longer. Take care of yourself and try to also remember that when each door closes a new one opens
  • Crystals that are beneficial for the Heart Chakra include, Rose Quartz, Jade, Green Aventurine, Emerald, Green Tourmaline, Malachite, Rhodochrosite and Chrysoprase
  • Aromatherapy oils for the Heart Chakra include angelica, marjoram, hyssop, lavender, rose, chamomile, ylang-ylang, jasmine, sandalwood, rosemary and frankincense
  • Use positive Heart affirmations. Take a few moments to sit in quiet reflection. Tune into your own Heart Chakra and find the affirmations needed specifically for you at this time. Feel what you need to say to yourself to bring healing to your Heart Chakra and take a few minutes each day this week to repeat them. Embody them. Believe them! Use affirmations such as:
     “Love is the answer to everything”
     “I am an infinite being full of Divine Love, which I give and receive freely and openly”
  • The Heart Chakra’s Element is Air. Sit outside and feel the breeze upon your skin is very beneficial to your Heart Chakra. Because the colour green is around us in the trees and in the grass, going out walking, or laying in the grass and allowing the heart to feel it, can begin to bring it into balance!

Throat Chakra – Vishuddha - BLUE

Location: Base of the throat
Maintaining Balance in your Throat Chakra:

  • Use scents and smells that positively affect the Throat Chakra, e.g. frankincense, chamomile and sandalwood
  • Self-expression is paramount and one way of doing this is by writing thoughts and emotions down – start journaling on a regular basis
  • Integrate the colour blue into your wardrobe, home décor and life
  • Sitting outside under a beautiful blue sky with the sun shining down on you help balancing this Chakra. Lighting blue candles will also greatly benefit you if there is an imbalance

You may even choose to use one of these crystals as a pendant around your neck
  • Use positive Throat affirmations. Take a few moments to sit in quiet reflection. Tune into your own Throat Chakra and find the affirmations needed specifically for you at this time. Feel what you need to say to yourself to bring healing to your Throat Chakra, and then take a few minutes each day this week to repeat them. Embody them. Believe them! Use affirmations such as:
     “I speak freely and with confidence”
     “It is now safe for me to express my feelings and to create the life I desire”
     “Everything I do is an expression of Love”
  • Meditating out in nature will begin to balance the Throat Chakra so that you can begin to receive messages from the Universe.
